“Nosy Komba Combo - stick it on the list!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

We loved this! We walked around the nature reserve, which is quite tiny but beautiful, fell in love with the lemurs which jump all over you, walked through the market, spent a few bob and then went and had an ice cold beer on the beach... stick it on the list!

“Wild lemurs”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

Saw wild lemurs, boa constrictor. Had a walk through the forest but
it is over a very small area - I would like to have gone further into
the forest.

“Up close and personal with the lemurs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2012 via mobile

Traveling to the island by pirogue is a great experience although the typical village rubbish is evident in the launching area. In fact it's such a shame but Madagascar is suffering from no education for this escalating problem. Seeing the lemurs and chameleons in their natural habitat enhances the experience and our guide, Armand/Harman did not seem to take advantage of these curious creatures. Take plenty of repellent, sunscreen and good walking/water each shoes.
